The Gurten

Affectionately known as the Güsche, the Gurten is Bern’s own mountain. Its 858-meter peak can be reached by bicycle, on foot on via the Gurtenbahn. From 7 hrs onwards, the funicular railway departs every quarter of an hour; the five-minute trip from base station to the summit guarantees wonderful views across Bern and the Central Plateau. With plenty on offer for people of all ages and two restaurants, the Gurten makes for a worthwhile day trip.
